Intl. Notebook Nov 6 2023
When you've gotta go you've gotta go—inside your costume.

When you were a kid did you ever wonder how mermaids performed their bodily functions? We did too. And now that we're adults we wonder the same about actresses that play mermaids. The Pulp Intl. girlfriends seem to use the bathroom about every two hours, so assuming they're close to average in that department we can't imagine that shooting mermaid movies is a time efficient process. In this case, the performer shoehorned into a rubber tail is French/Italian actress Dominique Boschero, who did it for her 1963 film Mare matto, aka Mad Sea. We feel for her. It's a pretty simple mermaid outfit compared to Ann Blyth's in Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid, but still highly inconvenient, we suspect. We'll watch the movie to see if her discomfort was worth it. Meanwhile, more promo images below, and see another Boschero image here that we were first to put online way back in 2011.
